What does it mean to cut a key?
No, we aren’t injuring the key. Instead the locksmith shapes the key into the right profile to fit the pins of the cylinder lock. Indeed every cylinder lock has tumblers inside with little pins. Each pin has to be lined up right for the lock to open or close. Thus the key has to press and move these pins, otherwise it jams and the lock won’t budge.
